going back sadly to the george w. bush years when, you know, he looked into his soul and he could see the real man of vladimir putin. students of russia and people who understand russia, i think, believe that in the era of the new openness after the collapse of the soviet union, there is still a strain and a very strong strain now, of the old lurch to more totalitarian or communist thought. clearly putin has been of that mind set. he is not changing. doesn't mean we can't work with him on some things. but we have to be much more realistic. >> putin doesn't care about snowden. he couldn't care less with him. he is using this. >> to prop himself up. >> show how tough he is. i'm much tougher than your guy. and that's what he is doing. so, if it were me. if i were barack obama, number one, i wouldn't say anything publicly because that strengthens putin. that gives him more power. i would send kerry over there. pretty soon. >> oh, god. that's going to be a disaster. >> bill: kerry, you might not like him, but kerry can be forceful. >> he has done so well on the middle east peace process. >
, the jobs chart. when president george w. bush, whose father nominated this judge to the federal court by the way, who made the ruling against health care, george bush left office, junior. the private sector was shedding jobs month after month. after president obama, we now have had 41 straight months of private sector job growth. and all that progress happened despite gop obstruction and derangement. is that right? >> yeah, that certainly is true. and by the way, if you drew a line in that graph where the recovery act took place, you'd actually see that it was an inflection point that some of those numbers started to turn right around that point. in other words, not only has the economy improved as the recession recedes in the rear view mirror, but back when the president took office, he was able to get some compromise out of members of congress. he had more democrats to work with back then as well. and to apply policies that actually helped. now, just this past week, the president went to republicans and said i've got a deal for you. i'm going to give you a big cut on the corporate t

above 1300. and i want to call the former u.s. department of labor chief under george w. bush. welcome back to the program. now, i've read through this report and i've got a couple of problems with the nature of the report and i want to bring them to you. number one, the number of part-time workers went up, and it's now at a record 28 million people and part-time work. i think that's dismal. i think that's bad. and you say what? >> i fully agree with you. we started to see the trend last month and we identified it. what we need to do, take a look at this thing for several months, but this report is extremely troubling when you look at part-time work and that you used to have a white house saying it's solid only because a quarter nearly people have dropped out of the work force. >> 63.4%, that's the participation rate. that's right around generational lows. that seems to me-- >> that's correct. >> america is not working. >> yeah, no, i mean, what we saw several years ago is for young americans, 18 to 29, this type of thing happening where you saw people dropping out of the work force an
closely with mueller during george w. bush's administration. and julian zelizer. he's a princeton university professor of history and public affairs, and is the author of a book on the politics of national security. secretary chertoff, it's been said that director mueller had to oversee the transformation of the f.b.i. from a crime-fighting agent city to a national security one. in practical term what is did that mean? what had to change at the f.b.i.? >> well, of course, the f.b.i. continues to be a crime fighting mission but intelligence and prevention have to be equal priorities with prosecuting and punishing crimes after that they occur and that meant creating a career path that will foster the development of an intelligence capability. it meant to some degree centralizing the activities of what used to be a widely decentralized agency so you could have a coordinated approach to dealing with counterterrorism and perhaps most important it meant taking the f.b.i. overseas, putting them into the field, getting them involved, working side by side with our men in uniform and women
gershon, a former george w. bush speech write are says cruz views this as the last stand against obama care, a conservative alamo instead, it would be a little bighorn. cruz bids to become a custer for our time, an actual shutdown of the government the only realistic outcome of his strategy would work for conservatives only if voters blamed it on obama's intransigence. so americans would need to side with the faction of a disdained institution pursuing a budgettarily maneuver that will many republican maneuvers regard as desperate and doomed. joining us now are two political analysts, david corn of mother jones and sam stein with the "huffington post." sam, what probably brought this to a head? what finally got people like gershon and krauthammer and others i sim out there over the prairie to say we'd better be careful. if cruz gets control of the opposition here of the republican party, we may be in trouble. >> i think it was the sheer overtness of it. it wasn't as if he was trying to set the stage for a government shutdown. he was sort of actively courting it. and when you're trying
had a little piece of the american dream and then george bush came in and it exploded. and we are now approaching 60 with no savings, nothing to fall back on, no family, and i'm down here in the middle of these instant millionaires making frac-ing money that would rather guy oozies and another damn fishing boat than give to the food bank. i have to stand in line with food stamp application this afternoon, and i have never had to ask for government help in my life. and when i was making good money. i gave to the food bank, and the inhumanity of man that i see in this country makes me so sad, and i'm just at the end of my rope, and no one understands our mise misery. and sequester, i had four loads picking up in chicago every week to come to san antonio you for a customer who makes cookies for the soldiers. and now i might have another load in two weeks. that took money out of my pocket. i just don't feel like anybody listens anymore. >> stephanie: a lot of people are listening right now, marie, and your story breaks my heart, and it's unfortunately all too common. i mean that's -- that
